The idea of becoming a big-league manager never left Walt Weiss. He just put it aside for a time. But now the former shortstop has emerged as a strong candidate to fill the Rockies’ vacant job after interviewing with the club this week.
Weiss spent some time in the Rockies front office after he retired but most recently coached a high school team in the Denver area.
The Post also notes that Diamondbacks third base coach Matt Williams is a candidate as well. Given the Stars of the 1990s kick they seem to be on at the moment, it’s also rumored that the Rockies are going to adopt Everclear’s “Santa Monica” as official team song.
